    Is the list supposed to be a surprise? Seems that it has the predictable suspects:

    * Schools heavy with engineering or CS majors, or engineering or CS divisions.
    * Nursing divisions.
    * Elite business divisions.
    * Elite schools that attract investment bank and management consulting recruiters, regardless of major.

    With what percentage of graduates reporting salaries in each case? Numbers like these are highly misleading because they reflect largely those who reported salaries from on-campus recruiting.
